From anguish,pain and paranoia flee
Into calm and joyful states of mind
Keep your balance so that you can see
To yourself and all the lost be kind
Do not linger in the shopping mall.
Do not meet the ladies as they lunch
Flee to parks and gardens, flowers and soil.
Flee to sandy beaches,find a bench.
If you feel such hatred, what’s the evidence?
If you have been wronged oh do not sulk.
Much good in life arrives by happenstance.
Do not cling to angry thoughts in bulk.
Exercise your body with romance
Even nasty places give a start
To finding the true path with mind and heart
I thought I loved a man with all my heart
Until I ate your famous apple tart.
I thought that I could live inside his arms
Till your heat destroyed his little charms
I was too kind so now I shall be cruel.
You must fight a sex fiend in a duel
I needed to escape his lassoo long
So I burst into a moralistic playgirl song
He could could afford no golden ring for me
He banks with only HSBBC.
I said he had to save me on his Drive.
He hates Google,ain’t that a surprise?
With guided missiles and misguided men
The world may end when Putin waves his pen
Mary realised her voice was louder than most when people took out their hearing aids when she talked to them
But was she right?
There are alternatives explanations such as people were not interested in Wittgenstein but in the cost of living
She did find her booming voice useful when phoning doctors,
Why had her voice got louder as she aged? Could her doctor have given her testosterone instead of oestrogen?
Off she went to meet her doctor on Zoom
Oh,my God her GP shouted.
When you said you were an 85 year old mathematician I assumed you were a man but your voice was feminine hence I gave you male hor.mones to deepen it and make it more authoriative
Why don’t you change your gender ? he continued
I don’t feel like a màñ
How do you know how men feel ?
They have felt me in bed with an urgency that surprised me
If you tell them you are trans they won’t feel you anymore
Unless they are gay
And so say all of us
“Skilful communicators know that words are weak vehicles of meaning. They realize and remember that many people choose among them quickly and that what is meant is often not what is said.
This mindset is difficult to acquire. Most of us proceed each day to operate on unchecked inferences and judgements. We assume far more than we check, thereby trusting observations that are inaccurate. Arguments often result.
I’ve devised a shorthand method for avoiding such communication pitfalls. It’s a mind-exercise routine to expand powers of observation. It bypasses the tendency to react impulsively. Over time, it becomes a way of disagreeing without being disagreeable.
The acronym for this is PURRR. It’s useful in helping to remember the steps involved and evokes the image of a cat calmly responding to its environment. Here are the steps involved:
— PAUSE the next time you’re about to formulate a judgment about a person based on something he or she has said or done.
— Make sure you UNDERSTAND what the person meant, which may involve inquiring rather than assuming.
— REFLECT briefly on whether the intention was to insult you. In any case, try to place your focus on the issue at hand.
— REINTERPRET what was said in a way that allows for a considered response rather than an impulsive reaction. Share that reinterpretation (e.g., “We actually agree more than meets the eye,” or “I believe there is only one rather small issue on which we still have some disagreement”).
— REDIRECT the conversation onto a path that best serves your own or mutual goals (“If we resolve this one aspect, or agree to disagree, we’re on a good track”).
Let’s suppose your usually easygoing boss is in a foul mood. He approaches you and angrily says, “I need that report tomorrow. No excuses.” You weren’t going to be late with the report. In fact, your work is never late. You are at a choice point. Do you react defensively? You could ask, “What’s wrong with you?” But what’s the primary goal? Is it to get the work done or fix his unusual mood?
It may be better to PAUSE. Upon REFLECTION, you may UNDERSTAND his comments were out of character. Perhaps he is under pressure. Rather than focus on his bad mood, which will delay your work and get you into a discussion at a time when he is angry, you could REINTERPRET the event as a one-off slip on his part. Next, REDIRECT the conversation onto a productive path. One way to do that is to simply reply, “I’ll have it on your desk first thing in the morning.” This response bypasses the relational (bad mood) component and instead focuses on the content of what he said (timely delivery of the report).
There are times when after applying the PURRR process, it’s clear that the comment was just too personal or outlandish to let it pass. At least you won’t have flown off the handle by making something that is about the other person (current mood) about you as well. If you’re prone to making disagreements into disagreeable situations, this technique may be just what you need.”

One friend became an atheist till her grandson got cancer
Then she prayed
Let him get Better and I will start going to church again
Do we think God needs us to go to church?
He needs us to help the poor starving, suffering, lonely
Going to Church is for the Church
Did Jesus plan to build a Church?
It is ridiculous
For three weeks I had a virus so could not exercise.I was concerned because my muscles are not in the ideal condition
I mentioned it to someone who said
But it’s not your fault
That is true but our muscles will get weaker if we don’t use them for ANY reason.Whether it is our fault or not
The body does not know why we don’t move It just reacts to how we use it
Oh for the happy days when we could fall over and get up again
With no injuries
